IFAA is proud to announce that its Deputy Director, Michael Nassen Smith, has been named as one of Mail and Guardian’s Top 200 Young South Africans in the category of Politics and Government. M&G describes the list as “not an award as much as it is a mark of distinction — a number of young people featured have since grown into leaders in their fields. This is a celebration of excellence as much at is a directory of future leaders.”
In the profile on him, the paper wrote:
“His work at the institute has seen him develop educational material for the democratisation of economics knowledge, to empower those most affected by economic inequality and injustice. He has written for various journals, policy research papers, newspapers and magazines on subjects including inequality, race and racism, the state of left-wing politics in South Africa and decolonisation and curriculum reform at universities. He also serves on the editorial team of the IFAA’s flagship publication New Agenda: South African Journal of Social and Economic Policy.”
